Delerium - Archives Volumes 1 & 2 (Review)

(by Andy Jones)
Future Music UK Autumn 2001

Delerium were responsible for the dance anthem Silence but have been making music since 1988. Their work since then, has now been spread over two CDs which chart the Delerium sound from its dark soundtrack beginnings (Face, Forms & Illusions) through ambient soundscapes (Morpheus) to world influences (Syrophenikan) and sequenced electronica (Spheres I & II). It's a world away from club territory or from the lush, deep side of Enigma but that's what you should expect from the men who have produced music in just about every genre going.
